Shaw Architectural Treasure Hunt

Recommended Posts

The first-ever Shaw Architectural Treasure Hunt will take place during National Preservation Month, May 2007. The Treasure Hunt form features photographs of 15 striking architectural elements on buildings along 7th and 9th Streets, NW, between K Street and Florida Avenue.


Take a walk along Shaw's commercial streets and identify the buildings represented by the clues, writing the address of each building on the form. Then return the form to one of the locations listed on the form in order to be entered in a drawing for prizes donated by neighborhood businesses.


Every participant will receive a full color poster featuring vividly color enhanced images of Shaw's architectural gems.


Pick up a Treasure Hunt form at one of the following locations:


Azi's Cafe, 1336 9th Street, NW;


Breakwell's Coffee + Tea, 900 M Street, NW;


Dan the Man's Teriyaki & Subs, 1936 9th Street, NW;


Kennedy Recreation Center, 1401 7th Street, NW; Lettie Gooch Boutique, 1911 9th Street, NW;


Long View Gallery, 1302 9th Street, NW;

Be sure to provide your contact information when you submit your form so you can receive an invitation to a National Preservation Month closing event on May 31, 2007, where the prize winners will be announced and where you will be able to learn more about the buildings featured in the Treasure Hunt.


This project has been funded in part by a U.S. Department of the Interior, National Park Service Historic Preservation Fund grant administered by the District of Columbia' Historic Preservation Office.
